New Recipes to Try – 2020

Have you ever had a bunch of sites opened and then something happens and you lose them all, but you can’t quite remember what they were, so you can’t exactly get the ones that you exactly wanted?

Well, recipes are the worst sites to lose. I once found an incredible homemade oatmeal recipe that clearly explained how to make oatmeal just right for a variety of palates, but I lost it and can’t quite remember how to find it again. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

So, to prevent this bundle of new sites I have recently found, from getting lost to the internet void, I decided I would just blog about them here. That way I can hopefully get them, no matter what.

I’d like to try and let you know in a “Throwback Thursday” how we liked many of these recipes. But for now, I can share about a few that we have recently tried and REALLY enjoyed!

Recipes to try:

  • Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal (with eggs) – looks interesting enough to try! I am only willing to add an egg to my oatmeal because one of my favorite homemade Mac and cheese recipes calls for adding an egg too it too. I thought that sounded disgusting, but it actually did make it super creamy, with no hint of an egg taste.
  • Chicken and Fall Roasted Veggies Sheet Pan Dinner – I need ideas for RV trip dining. I hope this will be a good one. I also hope the RV we use will have a good oven too.
  • Brain Booster Pancake Recipe – another great way to use our oats AND find a gluten free balance in our diet.
  • Healthy Zucchini Oat Muffins – Food storage oats + frozen bags of shredded zucchini = a possibly yummy way to feed our family and not waste food!
  • Chicken Piccata with Capers by the Food Nanny – we have made this recipe before, but it has been over 5 years. We have capers in the pantry, so I’m going to give this recipe a try again. We loved it last time! And we live on a citrus grove. So we hope it is a winning recipe again!
  • Balsamic Pot Roast – we have one roast left in our freezer, as well as a huge bottle of balsamic vinegar. We love balsamic, so I think it would be fun to give this roast a try. I’m excited to tell you what we think of it. Worst case scenario, make the roast into BBQ Beef sandwiches!
  • Low FODMAP BBQ Pork Sandwiches – I have run out of BBQ sauce and I don’t want to buy anymore. I found this recipe and realized I had all the ingredients in my pantry, to make my own BBQ sauce. I also have a pork roast that needs to be eaten.
  • GF Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies – yep. More oats! I also have two cans of pumpkin in my pantry. So why not make some cookies to help us with our boredom sweet tooth, and to help us save money?

Recipes to keep making:

  • Creamy King Oyster Mushroom Pasta – I LOVED this dish while we were on our Low FODMAP meal plan and I fully intend to keep making myself this meal for lunch!!!! I didn’t find King Oyster Mushrooms here, so I used portobello. I look forward to trying the real thing. Yum! πŸ˜‹
  • Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies – let’s just say I have unashamedly eaten 6 today and I don’t feel yucky or at all guilty. They are better than most granola bars, and beat a sugary sweet cookie!
  • Zucchini Pizza Bites – yum, yum, yum!!! So good! I especially enjoyed a small piece of pepperoni on mine. More?? Yes please!
  • Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pasta Sauce – We had this sauce cooking while we ran away from home this week. When we returned, the smells this delicious pasta sauce shared lovingly with us, welcomed us back to our quarantine prison, I mean home. I highly recommend you add more cream or evaporated milk to make this sauce extra creamy and smooth. I also warn you that 1/2 tsp. pepper is quite spicy, but with added cream, it’s not as potent. We made our sauce with scallions, Asiago cheese and evaporated milk. It’s what we had on hand and we liked it! Enough to keep it for leftovers. πŸ˜‹

Lastly, many of these recipes were found here, at this site. I found them as I was trying to prepare my family for a future long road trip. We really don’t want to eat out every meal, nor do we want to eat foods that will just make our bodies sick and unhealthy. So I’m excited to give these ideas a try!!!

Well, that’s a wrap!!! Literally. I love that I now have one place that I can go to access all of my idea blessings this week. Let me know if you try these sites and what you thought of them.

Happy Saturday,
